I love going on a trip, but it’s hard when Trav stays here and I go. I miss him, and our kitty, and our bed. Everything, really. I usually get very homesick around the 4th or 5th day, and this trip was no exception. But it was taken away by talking with Trav on the phone and then seeing my family.
He recently went to a game development conference in Boston, to help his son promote a new online game. They made some sales!
I’m very lucky to have a good partner who tries hard to understand me and to make our lives better every day.
5th/24th Anniversary trip up the Weeki Wachee! We started at Rogers Park and went all the way up to the springs, then back down. It was a blast. Paddling upstream is a little challenging in places, and I learned a lot about steering and paddling on this trip. Lunch was chipotle chicken lettuce wraps and jicama sticks, with Dove chocolates for dessert. We saw two snakes, a raccoon, slider turtles, a snook, and lots of other fish which I’m working on identifying. The birds were plentiful with anhinga, cormorant, duck, ibis, herons, a grebe, and George the bald eagle. We saw a pair of great blue herons fly gracefully into their nest, calling to their babies all the while. Plus I got a new bird to mark in my book, the Louisiana heron.
It’s new to me, anyway. I got Trav’s phone after he upgraded. Now I don’t have to worry about space for a long while and it has some really nice features. My wallpapers are pictures from the Hubble telescope and just beautiful to look at.
She’s been scratching around her head and the vet gave her some steroids to see if it helps, and it did! Now to try and eliminate seafood from her diet. It seems to be in just about every cat food!
He’s graduating from Marine boot camp and will have 10 days home before he has to go back for training. Yipee!
We stopped at a park so I could go to the bathroom, and at the dock, Trav struck up a conversation with a guy we had seen on going up and down on his paddleboard. He was a traveling policeman, in town to do some training. And he didn’t want to lug all his drinks back in his cooler, so he gave them to us! So nice.
Thanks to my brother for getting us the Rhino Rack! It’s a 13.5 foot sit-in kayak. It’s perfect and we’re very happy and can’t wait to use it all over the place.
She takes such good care of her.
One of our dance friends recently died and his service was today. He captured Larry perfectly and made us laugh and nod and thankful to have known him.
Trav took us to The Rising Sun Bistro in Brooksville. I had a delicious burger and they had excellent reuben sandwiches.
